German Pancakes, Dutch Babies, or Pannkaka

by Christine - From Dates to Diapers on November 6, 2008

We made German Pancakes for the first time the other day. I really wish I had come across this recipe before now…

Katja has informed me that these are called pannkaka in Sweden, and pannukakku in Finland. La Mama Naturale says they are best with lemon and powdered sugar. And, Melanie calls them Dutch Babies!

Whatever you call them, they sure are tasty!

here’s what you need:

* 1/4 cup butter
* 1 cup all-purpose flour
* 1 cup milk
* 6 eggs, lightly beaten
* 1/8 teaspoon salt

here’s what you do:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Melt butter in a medium baking dish.

2. In a medium bowl, mix flour, milk, eggs and salt. Pour the mixture into the prepared baking dish.

3. Bake on center rack in the preheated oven for 30 to 40 minutes, until golden brown.

Wow–yes, so easy! I’m thinking even adding vanilla and cinnamon might be yum too. :)

We call this panacooken! It is my favorite because we eat it with fresh fruit, ice cream, syrup, whip cream! What could be better then ice cream at breakfast!

I've only seen these made in cast iron skillets. I seriously never thought about making them in a regular baking dish. I'm going to have to make one. My favorite toppings are fresh fruit, powdered sugar & syrup.
